How Does BeSci Fit into the Work of the UN? - Value Add and Criticisms

As the application of behavioural science to public policy has grown in the last decade, a number of opportunities as well as critiques have emerged. What bearing do these critiques have on the UN's application of BeSci? This session reviews and discusses prominent critiques of the discipline raised by activists and academics, and how these manifest and are addressed within the UN. A panel composed of Michael Hallsworth (Behavioural Insights Team), Ukasha Ramli (UNICEF) and Anisha Singh (Busara Center and University of Chicago) discussed the appropriateness of applied behavioural science across contexts, expectations management, and the constraints with which UN behavioural science practitioners have to work.
